Imphal East Zilla Parishad Members Allege Foul Play

IMPHAL, Jan 27: Some Members of the Imphal East Zilla Parishad have raised serious allegations that the polling held today with regard to no confidence motion moved by eight Members against Adhyaksha and Up-Adhyaksha of Imphal East Zilla Parishad was done on the sly.

They demanded that the voting should be declared null and void.

Speaker to media persons at Manipur Press Club here this afternoon, some ZP Members who moved the no confidence motion but did not receive due notification for the confidence motion alleged that the voting was done in a fraudulent manner under a conspiracy hatched by Adhyaksha P Bimola in cahoot with the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Parishad.

Subsequent upon the no confidence motion moved by Adhyaksha and Up Adhyaksha by eight Members, the CEO issued a notification on January 24 to discuss the motion on January 27.

Out of 19 Members of the Parishad, nine Members could not get the notification issued by the CEO because of a conspiracy hatched by P Bimola.

Moreover, the CEO also flouted rules by fixing January 27 as the date for discussion of the no confidence motion.

According to rules, there must be a gap of at least seven days between issuance of notification and the day of discussion of such motion.

As they did not receive the CEO’s notification, nine Members were absent from the voting and the same process was participated by only ten Members.

Informing that 11 Members cast their votes in the voting held with regard to the no confidence motion moved against the Up-Adhyaksha, the disgruntled Members questioned from where the extra Member came out.  They also lamented that their appeal to postpone discussion of the motion fell in deaf ears.

They also decried the alleged detention of two Members from Jiribam on their arrival at Imphal airport on January 22 by family members of a Minister belonging to Imphal East district, only to be released today just ahead of  discussing the no confidence motion.

It is rather strange that the particular Minister in spite of being a Congress man supported MPP Member in the Imphal East Zilla Parishad.

On the other hand, a press release issued by the CEO informed that Adhyaksha P Bimola won the confidence vote and that she would continue to hold the office of Imphal East Zilla Parishad Adhyaksha for one more year.
